Use a Programmable Thermostat to Save Money
Colder temperatures are on their way, causing many homeowners to pack away summer clothes and dust off winter gear. You may also be bracing for the jump you’ll see on your energy bill once you turn on your furnace. However, with a few easy fixes, you can improve the efficiency of your heating system. At Environment Masters, we specialize in placing programmable thermostats in Jackson. These tools can help control the temperature in your home as well as keep energy costs low.
Why Go Programmable
Programmable thermostats allow homeowners to schedule the temperature in their home. In the winter, you may decide to schedule your house to be cooler during the day when you are gone and warmer at night when you are at home. When done correctly, this can cut hundreds of dollars from your energy bills.
Another advantage is that these devices are generally more convenient and more accurate than manual thermostats. If you decide to implement a programmable thermostat before winter, you might also consider having a certified technician:
- perform routine maintenance on your furnace
- take a look at your ductwork construction
- change your filters if you haven’t done so lately
These additional measures will help your heating system run more efficiently, which can also be a cost-savings. Cleaning your ductwork and checking for leaks or other repairs can ensure your system is in working order before you crank up the heat. Our specialists at Environment Masters are well-versed in meeting your heating needs while keeping costs affordable. Call us at (601) 353-4681 to schedule an appointment today.
